Joe Biden who just weeks ago held a double-digit lead in most national polls, but the latest polling confirmed what we’ve been reporting for the past week. The race for the White House is far from over as Biden’s lead dips under 5 percent, and even closer in the battleground states.
The results of the IBD/TIPP tracking poll, released Saturday, buoyed the hopes of President Trump of overcoming the Pro-Biden mainstream media, as well as social media censoring and repeating his historic 2016 Electoral College win of Hillary Clinton.
The survey by Investor’s Business Daily found that the President has narrowed Biden’s lead to just a 3-point edge in the six states Donald Trump won by less than 2 points in 2016.
Biden has 49.5 percent support nationwide in the poll of likely voters, compared to 44.7 percent for the incumbent — a 4.8 percent lead, which is just outside the polls 3.2 percent margin of error.
Trump gained almost a full percentage point on Biden from the poll’s Friday measurement, which found the Democrat with a 5.6 percent lead.
Trump’s Coming On Strong In Battleground States
In the midwestern swing states that once formed the Democrats’ solid “blue wall” — and which Trump flipped red in 2016 — Biden leads by only 2 percentage points, the survey found.
Among black and Hispanic voters the news is even worse for Joe Biden, as Trump has made substantial gains over his 2016 support.
The poll found Trump with 48 percent of the Latino vote, neck-and-neck with Biden’s 50 percent — and with 13 percent of the African-American vote, a substantial improvement over the 8 percent who voted for him in 2016.
The IBD/TIPP poll, one of the most accurate of the 2016 presidential election, had Hillary Clinton with a 1-percent lead over Trump on the final weekend before Election Day.
